This evening I’ve spent installing Symfony2 in the XAMPP 1.7.4 environment on Windows 7.
First, many thanks goes to Sebastian Widmann for his original post in German which already saved me a lot of time. Unfortunately the steps which were mentioned there are not sufficient (at least on my Win7 installation). My story follows… Continue reading
Great news: the year just begun and I already know CSS3 and HTML5. How it is possible? See the latest books from A Book Apart. I would really recommend to take an e-paper especially if you are a lucky owner of an IPad.
Looking forward for new releases.
For whatever reason the authors of phpBB are not showing the exact version. At least I can’t find it in two seconds even inside the administration panel.
If there is no easy way to do it,Â let’s do this simple trick:
SELECT * FROM `phpbb_config` WHERE `config_name` LIKE ‘%version%’
And here is how to do it in case you need an official support.

Don’t touch the running system.
Yesterday I’ve decided to spend some time to upgrade my “old school” TortoiseSVN to the latest release. I thought it should be a five-minute-problem or so.Â Sure…
The result was a nice greeting from my ZoneAlarm who was missing one of the Tortoise dlls. Thanks to Google and the author of this post. It was 5 minutes to find the answer however the solution took another 15 minutes instead of the 5 initially planned.
First commit, then upgrade ;)
Recently I have revisited the performance issue on my largest project – Diorama.Ru.Â 4000 users with 60.000 page views hitting the server every day. I am proud to have such a “playground” for performance optimization.
We’ve started with the MySQL tuning several months ago, then I have introduced the application level caching using Smarty template engine and finally pushed the last button – Apache gzip compression via mod_deflate.
On the first pages of ABAP Performance Tuning I’ve already learned something new. One of the most powerful methods of the performance tuning is the Kiwi Approach.
Kiwi = Kill It With Iron.
Exploring Boxes and Arrows today I’ve found a broken link. The 404-page suggested me to “go back to where you come from”. Nice.
I had an intention to help by informing a webmaster but I didn’t find any single contact (or at least the way to contact the authors) on the whole website. Nothing. Closed like a Black Box.
May be this is a new step in UX evolution, who knows…
